I got this book as an award for havinng scored the 2nd highest percentage among all the CST schools. I was amazed by the Patrul rinpoche's work and really moved by what he has written. It not easy to attain Nirvana but having read this book has really worked on how to control one's emotions, how to deal and take things calmly...in short all m tamed by this book. I keep reading again n again and Patrul rinpoche himself does that though he himself is d writer.
Thank you so much and i consider this book as one of the must read book by a budhist.
